eduroam (education roaming) is a secure, worldwide federated network access service for the international research and education community. With hundreds of thousands of wireless access-points sharing a common SSID (wireless access point identifier), eduroam acts as one large, worldwide, wireless hotspot. This map show just how far it reaches.
This worldwide network of RADIUS (authentication) servers facilitates network access for roaming academic users using IEEE 802.1x as the vehicle. Today’s common operating systems are shipped with 802.1x supplicants, making joining eduroam simple for users and simple to support for educational institutions. eduroam’s use of 802.1x in concert with RADIUS means the network is built around well understood, established, and easy to manage standards which are often already deployed within the network infrastructure of educational institutions.
IUCC is part of the European eduroam network.
Currently Tel Aviv University, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, University of Haifa, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Weizmann Institute of Science and the Holon Institute of Technology are connected to eduroam, We expect that all other universities will be connected shortly.
